Prince William and Kate Middleton got married in April 2011. At the time of their wedding, Buckingham Palace confirmed that “in accordance with the couple’s wishes”, only Kate would be given a wedding ring during the service. Speaking in a recent video on his YouTube channel, royal expert Neil Sean confirmed the real reason why the Duke of Cambridge does not wear a wedding ring.

Mr Sean said: “A lot of people have been asking me, as well, why doesn’t William actually wear a wedding ring.

“Particularly with these ongoing, I’m sure you’ve seen these ongoing tags on social media with ridiculous claims.”

He added: “It’s quite simple, Prince William is not a fan of jewellery.

“He doesn’t particularly like it and is not really bothered about it.”

He also adds that William thinks it “distracts aways”.

The royal expert also added that the royals are often seen shaking hands with different people on their outings and although a “lot of people are tested out’, someone “could be swift enough to get the ring”.

This is why a lot of jewellery worn by the royals, or high-profile celebrities is “paste” and “good copies of the original”.

A Palace insider previously told the Mirror, at the time of the wedding: “He’s [William] not one for jewellery.

Kate and William 'making small but very important changes'

“He’s never worn any.”

They added: “He decided he didn’t want to wear one now. It’s all down to personal preference.”

His grandfather Prince Philip also didn’t wear a wedding ring.
